§ VISCOUNT WOOLTON
My Lords, May I move together these three Amendments, and refer also to the Amendment to the Second Schedule, at page 35, line 10, to insert "or, as the case may be, the Board of Trade." These Amendments, with the exception of the second, are consequential on the Amendments to Clause 5 which enabled the Board of Trade to make labelling regulations. Clause 32 contains a transitional provision for keeping alive existing orders made under the Defence (Sale of Food) Regulations as though those orders were regulations made under this Bill. The introduction of the Board of Trade has necessitated a great deal of redrafting, with the result that some wording now appearing in paragraph (b) of Clause 32 has been transferred to the subsection which is the subject of another Amendment. In the second of this group of Amendments, opportunity has been taken to enable existing orders to be varied by regulation 1737 under Clause 3 or Clause 5 without the necessity of revoking existing orders and issuing entirely new ones. I beg to move.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.—(Viscount Woolton.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
